Knight is the No. 90 prospect overall in the ESPN Junior 300 — and the third from those rankings to commit to Notre Dame. He joins tight end Nate Roberts (No. 111) and running back Justin Thurman (No. 260), along with unranked defensive tackle Davion Dixon for the 2025 cycle.
Freeman also signed ESPN 300 quarterback Kenny Minchey in 2023 and had Steven Angeli in 2022. Going into this season, however, Freeman and his staff took in Wake Forest transfer Sam Hartman, who has been outstanding for the Irish through four games.
Hartman is only with Notre Dame for this season, however, and the offensive coaches will need to sort out who is the best quarterback to lead the team in 2024 and beyond. With Tyler Buchner and Drew Pyne both transferring out this offseason, Freeman is building depth for the future, and Knight could end up being a part of that plan.
